Translated from municipal web site:
"The flag was designed by a Captain of the Santander Batallion, with the following colours:
- Green, symbolizing the agroforestry an nature resources of the municipality;
- White, symbolizing the pacific relationships among the sons of this people, the cause of the nickname of "Haven of Peace" awarded to the municipality. In the middle of the flag, a rising sun representing the beautiful  sunset appearing on the banks of river Magdalena, radiating joy, tranquillity and clam to the natives and foreigners. The upper rays represent the "corregimientos" while the lower rays represent the "veredas", shown in yellow representing the resources of the municipality.
- Blue, recalling the lakeside-like, bank zone and its big fish and agroforestry resources, watered by the majestuous river Magdalena, carrying the water potential from the mountain and savanna."
